Indian textile magnate, Pankaj Parakh, celebrated his 45th birthday this week by wearing a custom shirt made of 18-to-22 carat gold…and going for a stroll. Pankaj had the shirt custom made by a team of 20 people, and it took 3,000 hours and over two months to make. While apparently the shirt remains completely flexible and comfortable, it does weigh almost 9 pounds so it’s still really heavy. Which might be due in part to the nine solid gold buttons. What do you think of this birthday present?
